Water quality, sea level rise, coastal resilience, forth coming stormwater regulations, and stormwater compliance – these are all critical environmental issues in Rhode Island that are connected to stormwater management. This EBC Rhode Island program will provide attendees with an update on the status of stormwater in RI, including the RI Industrial Stormwater Multi Sector General Permit (MSGP), sea level rise, a new resiliency tool – StormTools, water quality in Narraganset Bay, and new initiatives from RIDOT. In addition, this EBC program will provide the opportunity to hear from the original permit writers and regulatory officials on the proposed new stormwater requirements and what new tools are available to help municipalities evaluate and implement climate change and resiliency efforts.
